For every British and Empire soldier killed during the First World War, eight survived.

What did they go home to and what did society expect of them?

How did they adapt to their new reality; a shifting political and social landscape and the continuing conflict they would have to face?

Using the personal stories of Green Howards soldiers, we explore these pivotal post-war years.

‘Aftermath: living through the peace’ is the museum’s major exhibition for 2018; marking the centenary anniversary of the end of the First World War.



A range of talks and special events are taking place throughout the year, linked to the theme of the exhibition.
